Non-Case-Sensitve LIKE Operator

If I do a
SELECT .... WHERE DTEXT LIKE '%Findit%'
on an iSeries, I won't get records with 'findit' because the LIKE Operator
is case sensitive.
Is there a way to do a non case sensitive selection with LIKE?

Thanks

Hi Micheal;
Try .... WHERE lcase(DTEXT) LIKE '%findit%' or alternatively
ucase(DTEXT) LIKE '%FINDIT%' (I'm assuming that these column functions
are supported on iSeries).

Note that you will do a table scan if that's the only search criteria
since the index can't be used.

If it is to be an often-run query, a GENERATED COLUMN can be used, and
i believe that can get the INDEX.

hi, recently i discovered a memory leak in our code; after some investigation i could reduce it to the following problem: return objects of functions are handled as temporary objects, hence their dtor is called immediately and not at the end of the function. to be able to use return objects (to avoid copying) i often assign them to a const reference. now, casting a const return object from a function to a non-const reference to this...

We're currently doing some tests to determine the performance of static vs non-static functions, and we're coming up with some odd(in our opinion) results. We used a very simple setup. One class had a static function, and the one class had a non-static function. Both of these functions did the exact same thing. The test function: public void Test(){ decimal y = 2; decimal x = 3;
